Help U.S. Special Forces Increase the Survivability of Burkinabe Forces in Combat
The U.S. Army soldiers deployed to Burkina Faso are taking swift action to help their partners increase morale, and by default survivability in combat, by establishing a resiliency program. However, the plan, which includes sending counselors and Chaplains to the remote bases, was in jeopardy due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With travel in the country greatly restricted, counselors and Chaplains cannot reach the most affected soldiers at remote bases. The U.S. soldiers reached out to Spirit of America and explained that if the Burkinabe Chaplain corps had iPads, they would be able to conduct virtual classes with the soldiers on the front lines in the fight against terrorism.
With your help, Spirit of America will be able to provide exactly what the U.S. soldiers in Burkina Faso are telling us is needed to increase the morale and survivability of their partners who are fighting extremism during the COVID-19 pandemic.
